[qanda]This thread is about the LG GSA-H40N. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have my burner but its not a burner anymore. I recently tried to burn dvd's and it shuts off my pc. I figured out that as soon as it spins and turns on the write laser it shorts the system and the pc dies. I am thinking that maybe i can get the firmware and re-flash it and see what happens. I cannot for the life of me find even the same fw. It says it is RG01 on the drive. If anyone can give me some insight to what is going on here i would greatly appriciate it. Thanks
It just [B]could[/B] be the cable(s),PSU,or the lens needs cleaning.
The cables and the power supply are new. Ill try to clean the lens and see what happens there. Thanks

yeah the warranty is us alright. I used a cd lens cleaner disc and it now works. thanks
Well i got one dvd out of it and now it keels over again. The whole thing is i see after the pc shuts off that there is a little bit burned to the disc before it kills the machine. I dont get any warning either, it just dies like i pulled the plug.
